In place of a traditional curriculum night, we hosted a virtual town hall, featuring all teachers, assistant teachers, and specialists tasked with educating St. John School’s Kindergarten through 2nd Grade. Unfortunately, we missed recording the first 5 minutes of the meeting, but Mrs. Tsagalakis singing our school song can be found here. Also in attendance were Principal O’Leary and Vice Principal Kelley, who announced a tentative reopening date for these grades. None of this is possible without our immensely supportive community – thank you, everyone, for always showing up (and wearing masks).
Here are some time-stamped moments we’d like to highlight:
0:40 – Tentative K-2 Reopening Date Announced, October 5th. More details here.
